Pep offered a glass of wine to the Burton manager after the game and the Burton manager said how about a few bottles after that performance.

Really wanted City to get a 10th as I can't recall it happening in my 20 years or so following English football.

Everyone was saying the same last season and Bristol City did ok.

When he said he's not happy to win a game with a decision like this i thought he was meaning a wrong one, thats just my assumption though.

Lets hope the tie isn't decided on it as that would be pretty shit.

Nah he doesn’t like how unclear it is on how it’s used. He’s said more in detail previously think it was an FA Cup game where every goal got reviewwed and so much time got wasted and nobody knew the way it was being used. It’s more about managers and players not knowing the rules for a VAR game

Pretty piss poor by the FA who just dont want to admit they got it wrong. Telling that they are trying to discredit other replays which show the offside. And still no explanation as to why the offside line was drawn at Kane's feet on their image.

Really not looking forward to VAR being brought in, can see so many crap calls being made as the letter of the law will say it's a foul when there is contact, so even replays showing minimal contact will be given.

Happy for it to be kept to cups only whilst it gets fine tuned

Nah has to be a clear and obvious error to overturn the onfield refs decision. I think a lot of people are making a lot of fuss over stuff they haven't really looked into to be honest.

The only weird bit I can see is not being able to overturn yellows, so I'm pretty sure a player could be sent off even if the decision is overturned.

I’m a fan of VAR, just as long as they aren’t ruling out goals for really ticky touchwood fouls in the lead up. The Spurs v Rochdale fa cup game bring the example.

For offsides it will be really good. And in regards to incidents such as Kane’s, isn’t the benefit of doubt meant to go to the attacker? That’s how the linesman is instructed I believe

I don’t why they don’t VAR last touch before a corner or free kick in attacking half. Goals came from incorrectly called corners and FKs. Game would take about 4 hours but at least it’s fair
